Mounted a scope today

Post by Marlene »

I have a bargain rack TC Renegade that is my go-to frontstuffer. It’s ugly, but it’s awesome. Makes pretty good groups too. I like 54, it’s thumpy.

The other day, I started thinking about this, and today I did it. The old style scope blocks are low enough to be out of the sight line when I take the scope off. Can’t wait to shoot it like this.

54 sounds big, but a 54 round ball weighs only 220 grains. It's like a 44 mag.

44 mag isn't much in a rifle, less than 30-30

I don't know what that is, Marlene. But it's fucking awesome. You have a way with guns and art and the skills to make it work.

No, it's a reproduction. It's marketed as a "Malcolm" but this one is closer to a copy of the old Winchester and Lyman "B" scopes.

Small by modern standards. It’s 6x and you can see a whole standard target page at 100 yards, but I don’t remember off hand how much more. I’ll make a more accurate note of fov next time I have it in hand.
